Hope ESD | BP 6183 Instruction
Home and Hospital Instruction
Students temporarily disabled by accident or by physical, mental or emotional illness may receive individual instruction at home or in a hospital or residential health facility within the district. Such instruction may be given from one to five hours a week.
Home or hospital instruction shall be provided only when a student is expected to be out of school for two weeks or longer.
Home or hospital instruction shall be provided only by teachers with valid California teaching credentials.
Insofar as possible, the home teacher shall consult with the student's current classroom teacher or teachers so as to provide a continuity of instruction that enables the student to keep up with the regular school program.
When seeking instruction for a student at home or in a hospital located within the district, the parent/guardian shall present this request at the home school, together with a physician's written description of the disabling condition. The physician shall have determined that the student is unable to attend school and will not expose the home teacher to any contagious disease that can be transmitted by casual contact.
(cf. 5112.2 - Exclusions from Attendance)
(cf. 5141.22 - Infectious Diseases)
The district shall notify parents/guardians annually that (1) individual instruction is available for temporarily disabled students and (2) when a student becomes temporarily disabled, it is the parent/guardian's responsibility to notify the district in which the student is receiving care. (Education Code 48208)
An out-of-district student temporarily disabled and confined to a hospital or health facility within this district shall receive individual instruction when the district is notified by the student's parent/guardian. Within five days of notification, the district shall determine whether the student is able to receive instruction and, if so, when it shall begin. If given, instruction shall begin within five days of this determination.
